Christening (or Baptism) is the way new Christians are made and welcomed into God's church. It is a sacrament, in which a child or adult is washed with water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Baptism is open to all. Children who live within the parish can be baptised here, as can adults who attend St George's and prepare with a time of prayer and study.

If you wish to be baptised, or have your child baptised, please contact the Parish Office.

A Christian funeral commends the departed person to God's love and care, is an opportunity to give thanks for that person's life, and it is a space in which to comfort one another in grief.

Our Vicar or another minister will support you and your family through what can often be a difficult time.

To arrange a funeral contact the Parish Office.

Pastoral Care

Fr Sam, the Vicar of St George's, is available to talk and pray with anyone who lives in the parish.

By arrangement or on Thursday mornings, he will celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). This is a way for baptised Christians to confess their sins in confidence, know God's forgiveness, and

receive advice for living well.

Fr Sam will also anoint the sick or pray with those who are close to death. If this applies to you or someone you know phone 0121 454 9929.
